The Fitness Fund was established in 2016 as a tool to aid young people (ages 16-24) in their recovery program. Exercise and physical fitness can be an integral part of the recovery process. Not only does exercise help to increase natural endorphin and dopamine levels which drug addiction depletes, it also offers a routine, a sense of accomplishment and self-confidence, and potentially an entirely new environment and set of experiences to become involved with. All of these components are essential in a successful recovery program. Working closely with the Upper Valley Aquatic Center, our short term goal is to fund up to twelve weeks of personal training sessions and up to one year of gym membership for young adults already participating in a reputable treatment program. Our long term goal is to be able to open the Fitness Fund to people of all ages in recovery.
